the 1-2, almost fell down. >> lost his footing and spun out of his delivery and the pitch was to be a changeup but no telling what it was. it slipped out of his hand whether he lost his footing. >> gary: now it's 2-2. >> buck: orioles are threatening to break it open, and chen really got out of a touch situation and saved himself the five innings. >> gary: big plays early in close games, you never know until later on. you get a sense at some point because you'll have a chance to blow a game open. when it doesn't get done, you
him out? >> he still has a two-run lead. you don't want to bring the tieing run to the plate but at the same time you have to throw a breaking ball. he throws it so well. >> gary: again the 3-2 delivery. two down. the battle won by soria and there are who away. so the oriole with an out to work with, nick markakis a walk, two strikeouts and a ground out, soria only one in his 0 for 1 against him. soria had 42 saves in 45
opportunities last year, 74 career saves. nick markakis with an 0-1 count. robinson tejeda looking for the win in this game with relief. albers would be the losing pitcher for the orioles. that is outside, 1-1 on markakis. >> gary: markakis will take it. it's 1-2. soria on the verge of a shutout. it's a tough night for the orioles surrounding the five runs on 14 hits.
the oriole getting their three so far and count goes to 2-2. tejeda just did a tremendous job coming on. only one hit in three innings and a strikeout. >> gary: 2-2 down to third, the throw got him. this one is in the books. kansas city comes away with a 5-3 victory in game one with a 14-hit attack. game two tomorrow, berken taking the mound against bannister. our coverage begins at 6:30 with o's extra followed by the game at 7:00. thank you for
joining us, everybody. it was a battle through most of it until tejeda came on and shut the offense down. right now it's o's extra. kansas city celebrating a victory in this series as butler has a four-hit d and the bull pen outstanding in this game tonight. it's kansas city getting to opener as the orioles return home for the first time following the all-star break and come up short. jim hunter and rick dempsey here, this is o's extra. liquid at the job of bruce chen, base runners all over the
place, minimizing daniel, getting big outs, then the one- base hit was the first batter that tejeda faced. then the oriole 3 up and 3 down after that. >> the bull pen came nintendo solidified it. he just throw the ball over the plate. that really has everything to do with it. chen knows this lineup a little bit. he knows the veteran guys an kept them off speed with the curve billion and changeup all night long t. orioles didn't do enough hitting in this game to make it a factor. >> kansas city 14 base hits, winning 5-3. birds trail 1-0 in the bartholemew eugene letthand of the first. he gets that hanger out there off chen right at him, jones drills it right center.
big shot center field, ties the game for the oriole in the first. orioles took a 2-1 lead into the third and teahen gives the roils a 3-2 lead. >> pretty good job going to opposite way on a fast ball up in the zone. bottom of the fifth, wieters bases loaded and two men down. he gets the base hit. however, huge play on the tailnd of this as reimold is gunned down at the plate. >> the throw is wide of the base at home plate and still maybes the tag there. the orioles will not able to get another run. >> there's a swinging bunt by pena with the go ahead run. kansas city wins 5-3, three
runs on five hits for the oriole after playing so well at boston yesterday. albers the loss and soria pick up the save. right now we'll go back to the booth and welcome buck martinez. let's start with rich hill. everybody knows something has to happen. i'm not sure how, what did you see? he didn't give the orioles and effort that would encourage him to want to move forward. >> not at all. it's and approveuated start. it was his control, three walks and can't command the fast ball. that's creating a lot of problems not really him. butler, five hits in a game including this double, part of
a three-double inning in which they could score a couple runs. i think the big thing, hill has to command his fast ball. somebody is going to command pitch. that is six starters for five spots. dave said type and time again, he won't use a six-man rotation at this point. hill 20 innings, 20 earned runs, hasn't gone a game since june in philadelphia. i think the fast ball command has been a real concern. this leads to a lot of owe walks. he walks four. tonight three walks, one walk scored tonight. you can't continue to have the starters coming out of the game. it puts too much burden on your bull pen. >> they almost feel like they
have to blow them off assist field. allow them to come nintendo stay close for most of the ball game, not get the big hits they've been getting at home, and little things like that swinging bunt and they come back and win. i don't know what's happening. what go you see? >> what happens is when you go into chicago, then go to new york, fenway, you have a tendency to let down your guard when you see the royal come to on town. you have to be prepared to play every single night. in my mind the me mentum turned around in the second inning when chen struck out huff. more than anything i think you have to take the club seriously.
now you have to deal with the prospects of facing bannister and greinke to finish out the series. they have both been throwing very well. >> in baseball the law of averages can be a dangerous thing. customer customer city had lost 11 of 12. for chen it's still a win because he did his job, gave them a chance to win. they took advantage of that and seized the moment. >> i think it was uplifting to them. they had a situation where they had chen with five innings. tejeda retired eight in a row. that's such a great feeling for this club. their starting pitching is pretty good. we know about greinke.
so you can't take anything for granted. this club is anxious to crash and claw. they scored some runs tonight. >> now back at a time clubhouse to bring did you see postgame comments of manager dave trembley. >> we didn't make enough quality pitches late in the game. go ahead. that's something that'll not ready to say right now after this gape. the game just ended 15 minutes ago. i'm not ready to say that. >> you had opportunities as far as being able to have control and walked the leadoff hitter, walks the guy with .275 on base
percentage. >> that's what i'm talking about. it's your first game here off a road trip. you won a big game yesterday. you think you have confidence going, little momentum going. the tempo of the game has to be established from the get-go. you have to go out a fast paced temple, throw strikes, put a zero up in the first inning. you can't fall mind the tempo an pace of the game. you want to get uruguays back in to hit. i thought bass did a very nice job trying to clang the tempo of the game, get it back on our side. i wish wieters didn't hit hit that one so hard right at freel. but we had some good at bats
and then other guys on base that let chen off the hook. that's kind of it. >> do you think it's equal parts mechanics and confidence or just the pitching part, not confidence? >> i'm not sure, steve. i think you evaluate what you see. and you know, i think no matter who it is, it all starts with the able to command the fast ball, the able to throw strikes with a fast ball, the ability to make quality pitches with two strikes. i would say for the most part that didn't happen often enough tonight on his part. >> both pitchers were comin into the game struggling.
did you get a sense you wanted to come out and get a lead early against the guy that hasn't pitched well? >> yeah, we needed a couple big ones back to back for that to happen. and it didn't. we certainly had a couple opportunities there. but it didn't happen. >> you know, juan does a good job at third. reimold has been a good base runner. it's still early enough in the game with no outs i think that's the right call there. with to outs 50s what you do.
>> dave trembley following the loss to kansas city. he's talking about the missed chances. orioles left eight men on in this game, all eight left on in the first five minutes then was on ground. in the second inning they had the bases loaded and scored one run on a hit by pitch with the bases loaded. that was the inning aubrey struck out. in the five innings, chen only had one lee up, three down inning. kansas city wins it 5-3. player of the game as voted on by the fans, adam jones 59% after hitting the home run tonight. he's the player of the game. buckman 17 percent on night. o's extra presented beaverson
get the hits. when to runners are in scoring position should be able to get in. tell me act what you saw out there. >> i've seen fast balls, changeups. he stayed in. he stayed up and in on me, kept us off ambulance. there was a lot of us off the end. like i said, throw it away. >> interesting at bat for you, come up and think you have a base hit with the bunt then you get the home run. >> as i look back, i'm like, what are you doing? you're in third, swing the bat. >> is it frustrating because you look at this today and you feel like this probably was the opportunity to really get after
it? >> yeah. but at the same time you can give it up too. he's had a great year and he's not perfect. inch we can go out tomorrow and get him. >> thanks lot. >> thank you very much. i didn't know it was that easy. jones told himself, you're batting third, swing the bat, and he hit a home run. reimold has a four-game hitting streak and four consecutive multihit games. what are you seeing with his approach at the plate that's allowing him to be this consistent? >> he showed that when he cape to the big leagues too. four multihit games, six since the al break. he's settling in again like he did when he first came up. he's going with the pitch, going to opposite way. when they throw him the
breaking ball, he's get to go hits. he's get to go bag hits and building confidence. he's a big factor on the bases tonight three times. that's what the orioles need, guys that can get on and do what he's been doing lately. >> reimold continues to get it down, 14 hits since the all- star break. he now has nine base hits in 13 at bats at four can you have melt hit games. and butler came in here and not only got a hit every time up, he went five for five in this. >> he's more of a fundamental hitter. he's big and strong at the same time. he gets jammed a little bit on this ball but he's still able to hit the line drive to left.
he drives in the first run and continues on the night to slam every pitch the oriole throw up there. make a mistake on him, he'll make you pay. only four home runs on the season. you still have to make good quality pitches on this guy. he'll hurt you one way or another. he doesn't walk a lot. you can see what he did to the oriole all night long when they kept to ball up in the sloan outside. he did everything for them tonight. >> i hear you talk about confidence all the time. when you get that first base hit, first at bat, feel good about i. by the time you're 3 for 3 you're loose city goosy. where you are so relaxed up there, it doesn't matter what they thousand. uruguays just focus. when you can break it down into a simple factor, then don't

>> what we are seeing here the continued competition from within the organization. that is such a healthy thing to have. you don't want to see somebody at the big league level falter but if that happens, you have options. >> you have a lot of young guys down there. they are getting excited down there, throwing the ball over the plate, winning games, coming from a winning background. they are winning at double ark,
triple a ball. we need to bring the winning up here to the major league lev. they've tasted the blood right now. they all want a shot at it. soon you'll have to look at job these guys are doing up here and make evaluations as to where we're going to go. >> kansas city wins 5-3. yankees are in the ninth with an 11-4 lead over tampa bay. blue jays with a 1-0 lead on seattle. texas and detroit in the eighth and rangers contending this year if the al west with a 5-2 lead and chicago and minnesota in the ninth, minnesota holding onto a 4-3 lead. indians an angels are scoreless in the second. tonight it was 5-3 kansas city over the oriole. announcer: what are you waiting for?

>> rich hill tonight lasted just 14 batters, seven reached. short timing a hill with the media. >> you know, taking the ball. i don't havefully regrets. i gun up land compete and want to pitch and want to take the ball. everybody who is is competitor wants to go outland take the mound. as selfish as that might be, i still think i can go out there and help the team now. unfortunately it hasn't come to fruition. we've just been hurting the team more than i've been helping it. >> what do you think is going to happen now? >> i don't know what's going to happen. it's not for me to say. the only thing i can do is continue to work hard and just
keep going. >> we've been working hard during the week with rick and al and myself, fine tuning some things. it's worked out well. in the game it seems to go one, two innings then in the third inning, such doesn't seem to maintain or make noncompetitive pitches. i'm not saying i made bad pitches tonight. i think a few of those pitches to butler were inside and januaryed him. that's the way it goes. >> here is the matchup for tomorrow, game two of the series. >> bergen is looking for his second win. he won his debut. he's up against bannister, one
to the wall. ludwig goes back, leaps, makes the catch. an outstanding play and defense. a critical part of this game. great start, the balancele through, and great effort all the way around. >> and the new guys chipped in again. mark derosa hit a home run. matt halladay hit an r.b.i. double. derosa who has been a cardinal longer lugo and halladay certainly have all made an i am pocket and an impression on their new team. all have become regulars, and all are swinging the bat right now for tony la russa's cardinals as they win this game
6-1. good job down there, guys. enjoyed it. hope you did as well. the cardinal as beat the dodgers here to open up this series. >> gentlemen, thank you very much. a's-red sox. boston has dropped 6 of 8. two and a half games behind new york in the a.l.... east. nomar garciaparra signing some autographs. dustin pedroia, fork 'em sun devils.. solo jack. up 1-0. final four now, 2-0 sox. two on. the new red sock, adam laroche. and laroche tags the green monster. jason bay, come on in. j.d. drew to third. sox up 3-0. boston endes up cruising to an 8-3 victory. now 34-15 at home this season. that is the best record in the bigs. oakland has lost nine of the last 11 games at fenway. he's lost 7 of the last ten games overall. >> with becketts win, he improves to 7-0 at fenway park.
he and tim wakefield start the same season at least 7-0 at home. >> yankees and rays, james shields winless in his last six starts. yankees coming off a 9-1 homestand. first road game of the second half. robinson cano. his 15th of the year. hits 14 all of last year. but nick swisher. snapping a 22-game homerless drought. he hit two in this game. yankees win again. 11-4 the final. they are 10-1 since the all-star break. another strong outing by a.j. burnette. you you go back to early june, he was pulled in the third inning of the start against boston. after that, he said when i do get on that run, it's going to be impressive. i promises you that. since that start, 6-1. 1.6era. getting his tenth win tonight. >> michael vick might be able to play in games as early as october. commissioner roger goodell has
conditionally reinstated him. full reinstatement will be decided on by week six. in the meantime, vick is free to sign with the team and can practice. >> first and most importantly i think we all want to recognize that the conduct that michael engaged in was not only horrific, but it was cruel. and we all certainly recognize that. and i believe after meeting with michael that he recognizes that also. >> we take this as a very serious matter. we're dealing with a young man's life. and we were -- our process was similarly reflective of the seriousness of that. as you know, he can sign now with an nfl team. he can practice without delay with an nfl team. he may play in the final two preseason games of this pr preseason. and once the regular season starts, he can practice if the team so chooses. and i will decide within those
six weeks, within the first six weeks of the regular season when and whether he will be reinstated to play from there. >> here's what vick said. i'd like to express my gratitude and appreciation to commissioner goodell for allowing me to be readmitted to the national football league. i fully understand playing football in the nfl is a privilege, not a right. and i'm truly thankful for the opportunity i've been given. as you can imagine, the last two years have given me time to reevaluate my life. mature as an individual, and fully understand the terrible mistakes i've made in the past. and what type of life i must lead moving forward. here are the terms of michael vick's reinstatement. he can participate without delay in preseason practices, and make plays in his club's final preseason games. the first step is finding a team. he's free to do that as well. once the regular season begins, vick can participate in all his team's activities other than the games. in addition, tony dungy has
agreed to continue his work with vick as advisor and mentor. >> espn sources say baseball commissioner bud selig hasn't changed his thinking on pete rose's suspension. earlier today, the daily news reported that selig was considering reinstatement for rose. selig may now be more willing to lift owe rose's lifetime suspension at least partially. as hank aaron boasts support for rose. espn sources also say selig is now currently considering reinstate many. >> i always thought that whatever pete rose did, and i thought that by asking for forgiveness, that we should look at it very carefully. you know, he's a terrific ballplayer, you know. and i'm not here advocating that he should be inducted into the hall of fame. but i am saying that, you know, we all have done some wrong some time. you know, i mean, really.
all of us. all of us have done something that we are not -- we are ashamed of. but, you know, if that be the case, then pete asks for forgiveness, that's what we ought to look at. >> rose certainly boasts a hall of fame caliber resume. first all time in major league baseball in games played. plate appearances. at-bats. hits and singles. furthermore, he's second all time in doubles, and sixth all time in rub runs. he's also rookie of the year mvp. and world series mvp during his career. >> still to come on espnews, there is news about plaxico burress's future. why the wide receiver could be looking at more time behind bars. we have the very latest. >> phillies are still talking to the jays about roy holliday. find out if both sides are any closer to making the trade. and a bizarre rift between the gm and daily news writer.

halos are trying to hang on to their one-run lead in the top of the third. >> more long ball exploits. this coming off of the nationals. 13-6. they're leading. bottom of the 7th. josh willingham. hitting not one, but two grand slams. now it's 4 career grannies in his career. and willingham has tied an mlb record with two grand slams in one game. here it is. willingham is the 13th player to do so. but he's just the third in national league history. he joins fernando tatis who hit two grand slams in one inning. >> it was today, too, or he hit just one? >> he hit just one. fernando tatis hit his grand slams against chang hoe park, who always seems to give up up home runs that are always significant. >> elsewhere, espn.com's jason stark is reporting that the bluejays and phillies continue to talk about a deal that would send roy hal aday to
philadelphia. but a source with knowledge of the discussion say those talks are not going well. >> daily news reporter adam reuben showed up to cover a mets news conference this afternoon. when it was over, the writer was the one surrounded by microphones. mets gm omar manaya call aid press conference to announce the firing of team executive tony bernazard. reuben first broke the story that bernazard took off his shirt and challenged the double double-a team to a fight. manaya claimed reuben wrote the story so he could land a job with the mets. reuben called that idea despicable. >> in the process when the reports came out i had to kind of tell myself, wow. these things are coming out. and i say this because coming from adam reuben, okay, and adam you got to understand this. adam for the past couple of
years has lobbied for a player development position. he has lobbied myself, he has lobbied tony. so when these things came out, i was kind of a little bit i had to think about it. and i was a little bit, you know, somewhat kind of we've got to find out about this. we've really got to do a thorough investigation of this. >> he lobbied with you. >> yes. >> and with tony to work in the organization? >> yes, and others. so that kind of was something that, you know, when the reports came out, we had to kind of expedite this and find out about it. >> the investigation had started before that. i had asked omar to look into the incident on the bus, and to look into some of the other incidents that had happened. and we had been before that doing an investigation internally with hr into the merits of tony's relationship with some of the staff. >> jeff, how long has that
investigation been going on? >> two or three weeks prior to this incident. the incident in binghamton. >> did you share omar's concern about adam's report at the beginning because the way it was brought up? >> i don't understand. >> did you share the concerns about the conflict of interest concerns over these reports when he first brought them up? >> that didn't come up until today. >> he said that you once had a conversation with you about you inviting him possibly to talk about something. did you ever share that with omar going into today's press conference? >> no, not today. but i did have the conversation with adam. and what adam said is correct. we did have a conversation on career advice. and i don't think there's anything wrong with that for adam to come to me with that and speak to me. we were having an impromptu conversation somewhere. had numerous with other guys here. and i believe that adam was just doing what anybody else does.
i get a call a week, probably on somebody looking for career advice. >> what i said was adam over time has lobbied for a job. he has asked to work in the organization. i stand by that. >> on the field, the mets actually looked like a functional group. down 3-2 against the rockies. at home in the>> sixth. corey sullivan, in the last five years with colorado, lines out to right. but david wright throws from right field. and the mets tied the game at 3 in the eighth. you mentioned josh willingham, a two grand slams. tatis once had two in a game, two in an inning against chang hoe park. >> yes, as you mentioned. for every major home run, he is there. >> you name it. >> with a grand slam there in the eighth. giving the mets a 7-3 lead. and they hang on to win 7-3. going to throw out a name from the mid 90's. >> joe oars latch. >> i haven't heard that name in
a while. >> he hit a pinch hit grand slam at shea stadium. the last met to hit a pinch hit grand slam at home. for tatis, how about jeff francoeur. three homers, 15 ribbies in 13 games with the amazein's? >> great ending between the white sox and the twins. down 4-3 in the ninth. carlos quentin, leaps at the wall to make the catch. and save extra bases at least. the twins hang on for a 4 will have 3 win. the white sox 2-11 at the metrodome over the last two seasons. they haven't won a series there since september of 2007. perkins gets his first quality start in his last four outings of the the last eight earned runs in just one inning in his last start, much better today. seven innings and three earned runs. >> as for plaxico burress, he and his attorney have been
discussing whether the giants wideout will testify before the grand jury. this from sal paolantonio. the manhattan d.a. though told the "new york post" prosecutors want burress to serve two years in prison. sal pal with more on the d.a.'s comments. >> it's pretty unorthodox for a d.a., especially one who is this experienced to try to make comments that could, in fact, prejudice the sitting grand jury. we know for fact that the grand jury has been empanelled and the case his been heard by the grand jury. that came out about a week ago as we were anticipating an indictment would come down by the end of the month. but none has come down. from what i am hearing from my sources in this case the d.a. is very disappointed in the grand jury proceedings and maybe trying to induce the grand jury as well as antonio pierce into getting more cooperation of bo both. >> quotes from burress's attorney.

judgment, my decision is that a sotomayor vote on the court, the supreme court, will be another boat for the new kind of ideological judging, not the kind of objectivity and restraint that is served our legal system and our nation so well. thus, i am unable to give my consent to this nomination. madam president, i thank the chair and would yield the floor.
>> 56 years ago fidel castro led an assault on an army barracks in santiago, cuba. on sunday cuban president raul castro, brother of fidel castro, addressed thousands, marking the anniversary of cuba's revolution. he also talked about cuba's current economic challenges. this 35 minute even this courtesy of cuba vision television. [speaking spanish] >> translator: fighters of july 26, 1953. [applause] of the rebel army in the
clandestine fight and also i welcome the glorious internationalist teams, relatives of our fallen heroes, men and women of holquin. [applause] compatriots, i would like to start by asking a question because of my own personal interest. you know that i am from holquin. and i am entitled, and therefore i am entitled to poke around. and, i would like to know who from holquin had the bright idea of putting the sun behind me.
it doesn't bother me, but i am sure that none of you can see me you see a shadow, may be. that is me. [applause] and, for these reasons, on this festivity in author of the 56 anniversary of the attack on the barracks, my speech will be a very brief one. because-- because of the heat we have had during this year's summer, even though we started earlier than on previous occasions, we started at
7:00 a.m., and knowing that from 6:00 a.m., all of you were here. [applause] and, most of you came on foot from your homes in this area. last night, while i watched briefly the television, i already saw people celebrating this anniversary. but, in addition, there is that sun and that someone put in front of you that is very hot and for those reasons i will be brief. in the next few days, we will beholding important meetings
that will set the stage to analyze complex issues at length. the first one will be a meeting of the council of ministers the day after tomorrow, devoted to discuss the second adjustment to the expenditures of the plan for this year, because of the impact of the world economic crisis on our economy. and, especially the significant drop in export revenues and the additional restrictions to have access to external financing. you know that for 11 days i have been traveling in various
countries of that friendly country, africa, and i participated as president until just a few days ago of the non-aligned movement. i turned over the presidency to the president of v-chip, and therefore the time i have is a brief, is tight because of all these important meetings and the various topics we will be discussing. after the meeting of the council of the ministers on july 29, we will beholding the central committee of the party, during which the whole day, according to the official program and agenda, we will discuss vital issues having to do with the situation of our country and of the world.
and then finally, on august 1st, there will be in regular session of the national assembly at which time, among other issues, we will be discussing the new draft law for new office of the general comptroller of the republic, which is a body that will contribute to apply strictly our current legislation and will increase controlling activities in all of these structures of leadership in our country. this year, the selection of the venue for this celebration did not follow the established criteria. it would not have been
